Adjusting binoculars for birdwatching
Teaching your children or grandchildren about nature can start in your own backyard. Birdwatching is a simple, inexpensive way to start a conversation about our natural resources and their importance in the ecosystem.
But first, you’ll need a set of binoculars that you can actually see through clearly. If you have only one set, you’ll want to adjust them properly for each user. However, this task can be frustrating.
Extension Wildlife Biologist Adam Rohnke explains the correct steps for getting a clear view through your binoculars.
